Iolanthe | Queanbeyan Players

Satire is incredibly dependent on nuances in timing and expression, and unfortunately, Queanbeyan Players' production of Iolanthe falls all too often on the melodramatic side of the divide.

Brecht: Bilbao and Beyond

Brecht: Bilbao and Beyond is a fitting tribute to a playwright whose influence over modern theatre is greater than we tend to recognise.

I Love You, Bro | La Boite Theatre Company

I Love You, Bro is a solo comedy drama love story for the chat room age that goes beyond the screen and into the shadows that live within us.

The Dark Side of Midnight | Free Rain Theatre Company

The Dark Side of Midnight is a very engaging play. The way its domestic conflict is surrounded and punctuated by political turmoil is truly inspired, as is the way it doesn't use politics as a substitute for plot and character.

Four Flat Whites in Italy | Ensemble Theatre

Gaslight | State Theatre Company South Australia

Gaslight is an entertaining, non-convoluted, engaging and superbly written piece, so that it stands up well after 80 years, especially when its traditional strength is imaginatively blended with some non- traditional contemporary casting.

QPAC Unlocked: An Evening with Amy Lehpamer
